Datometry Named Winner of the Cloud Innovation Data Estate Modernization 2018 Award by Microsoft Corp

San Francisco – July 25, 2018 – Datometry today announced it has been named Winner of the Microsoft Cloud Innovation Data Estate Modernization 2018 Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence for its data warehouse virtualization SaaS solutions enabling enterprises to replatform existing or on-premise data warehouses to Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse in weeks, not years, and without rewriting applications.

Datometry virtualization technology makes databases and applications truly inter-operable which means Global 2000 enterprises can replatform to cloud databases, such as Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse, in weeks, not years, and without rewriting applications. The company’s solutions make the conventional approach of rewriting applications unnecessary, protect long-standing investments in mission-critical business logic, and enables enterprises to realize CAPEX savings swiftly.

Azure SQL Data Warehouse is a cloud-based, high-performance, globally available, and lower-cost secure cloud data warehouse which enables enterprises to independently scale compute and storage through a massively parallel processing architecture designed for the cloud. The data warehouse seamlessly creates the enterprise hub for analytics along with native connectivity with data integration and visualization services.

“We’re extremely proud and humbled to be named Cloud Innovation Winner by Microsoft among so many tier-one partners. This award is testament to the value we bring to Microsoft Azure. Solving replatforming—one of the most pressing problems enterprises face today—at a fraction of cost time and risk is as critical to Microsoft as it is to enterprise customers.” says Mike Waas, Founder & CEO of Datometry.

Bob Ellsworth, Director Enterprise Modernization at Microsoft Corp, “We are very pleased that Datometry has emerged as the Winner of the Cloud Innovation Data Estate Modernization 2018 Award.  Datometry was recognized with this award as a key member of our Platform Modernization Alliance. The customer response to our joint offering of replatforming existing data warehouses to the modern, cloud-native Azure SQL DW with Datometry SaaS solutions has been nothing short of phenomenal.
